STREAK ENDS

STREAK ENDS

BUNN -- Last season, Omar Rosa was a novelty third-down fullback for the Bunn Wildcats -- and quite an effective one at that.
But when injuries depleted the fullback position this fall, BHS coach David Howle bestowed increased responsibilities for Rosa, who was previously more known for his work along the line.
Rosa just keeps getting better and better at his new craft -- a fact that was in evidence during last Friday's 52-36 home decision over non-league opponent Nash Central.

NASHVILLE -- Nash County's undefeated Firebirds received a stern test last Saturday from the Nashville Hornets, but were still able to pull away for a 35-19 decision in Eastern North Carolina Football League action at The Hornets Nest at Glover Park.
Nash County is now 3-0 heading into this Saturday's backyard rivalry showdown at home versus the Northern Nash Knights.
Last Saturday's contest was tough from the beginning as Nashville took the opening kickoff and proceeded to drive a whopping 78 yards in 14 plays.

'Birds fly to victory at Glover

ROCKY MOUNT -- Nashville's offense came to life thanks to a sterling performance from Jimmandre Hilliard, but it wouldn't be enough to overtake a loaded Nash County Firebirds squad last Saturday.
Instead, the Firebirds piled up an early advantage and went on to defeat Nashville by a 41-20 margin in an Eastern North Carolina Football League rivalry showdown at The Hornets Nest at Glover Park in Nashville.

NN tennis on upswing

RED OAK -- When Northern Nash High School had a coaching vacancy for its boys tennis program two years ago, NN Athletic Director Patricia Haggerty turned to an unlikely candidate -- English teacher Lisa Weaver.
"At first I was like 'Are you kidding me?', Weaver said. "But they needed a coach, and they couldn't play if they didn't have a coach.''
Haggerty's hunch proved to be a shrewd one as Weaver is in the process of building up the Knights' and Lady Knights' court programs.

Knights surge at XC meet

GREENSBORO: Northern Nash High School cross country coach wasn't exactly thrilled with how his club performed during the annual Knights Invitational two weeks ago at the NNHS home course at Red Oak Middle School.
But the Knights made up for that rare subpar performance by rolling last Saturday at the annual Greensboro Invitational at Hagan Stone Park.
Taking on some high-level competition, the Fighting Knights took first place in the Boys Invitational Division with 73 points.
